WEEE: Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations

The WEEE regulations came into force in the UK on 1st April 2007 to ensure that all electrical and electronic equipment are recycled using the best available treatment, recovery and recycling techniques to ensure human health and high environmental protection.

What we are doing to help with your WEEE

Arc Euro Trade has joined a Producer Compliance Scheme (PCS) and make regular financial contributions which are used to finance the costs of collection, treatment, recovery and disposal of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) collection facilities throughout the UK. Our WEEE Producer Registration Number is WEE/FA1076RX.

We cannot take back items on your behalf. Nor can we collect any unwanted electrical goods from your home. But we can give you all the information you need to make sure your personal electrical waste is disposed of safely.

Look out for this symbol:
WEEE Symbol If the symbol shown here is found on any of your goods, it means the product may be classed as Electrical or Electronic Equipment and is covered by the WEEE Regulations.

What YOU should do to comply with the WEEE regulations:

When you purchase a product from Arc Euro Trade that contains electrical or electronic components, you will be able to dispose of the old one free of charge via the Designated Collection Facilities (DCF). The waste will then be treated so that hazardous elements cannot contaminate the environment, and where possible the item will be recycled.

When your WEEE product reaches the end of it's life, please do not put in your domestic waste bin, as it will not be recycled. To ensure your WEEE is recycled in accordance with the regulations, you should ensure that the goods are separately disposed of by taking it to your local DCF. This would normally be your local civic amenity site (recycling centre).
